I limp through the dark apartment back to my bedroom, cursing these nocturnal cramps that cause such discomfort to my legs.
Unsure if I have seen something move, I stare through the French windows that open onto my second-storey balcony overlooking the small residents’ car park behind the apartment block.
I lift my phone and step gingerly outside, immediately confirming that a shadow is skulking among the vehicles.
Intending to video the prowler, I instead take a photo, triggering the automatic flash which, of course, immediately alerts him to my presence.
As he turns his face towards me the moon appears through a sudden and unwelcome gap in the low clouds, and we see each other clearly.
My mind tumbles back through the years, and my heart freezes.
